Discover the fascinating world of nineteenth century photography. Examine real daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes, cartes de visite, stereoviews, cabinet cards and other photographs and learn how to identify early photographic methods. Techniques for interpreting images will be shared and we will discuss ways to narrow down the date of an image by looking at the photographic method, style of dress, case or photographer’s backmark, and other clues. This is a hands-on, discussion-filled program so feel free to bring a magnifying glass and any early photographs or family albums you may have at home.
